Welcome to Gunnison


This western town is home to the handsome campus of Western State College of Colorado, which opened in 1911. The giant W on the hill southeast of town is a reference to the college. However, a walk through the older residential neighborhoods will reveal numerous Victorians and masonry homes. Long ago Ute tribes hunted on the plains surrounding the present-day town of Gunnison in summer.
